Remote access

pts.
Tags:
I work in a large enterprise network. Many of my users need to connect to the corporate LAN from home using laptops. Several of them have high-speed access through their local cable company and are unable to get past their carrier's firewall to access the corporate LAN (the same cable company for all users experienceing this problem). Their current configuration is set for VPN. Is there a way to configure their laptops so that they can get past that firewall and access the corporate LAN? Would they have to use dial-up? The operating system is Windows XP. What other information would be helpful in answering this question?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the cable company is Comcast, they do not allow VPN from a standard residential connection (I DO NOT know if they actively block VPN connections…). In order for them to “allow” connection, a business class connection is required.

Brighthouse (Roadrunner) did allow VPN at one point, but I do not know the current status.

It might be possible to configure your VPN concentrator to utilize a “non-standard” port and so bypass the policy which is blocking access.
